#HeForShe - The advancement of gender equality

  • 1.  #HeForShe - The advancement of gender equality

    Posted 07-28-2020 12:21
    Initiated by the United Nations HeForShe is a solidarity movement for the advancement of gender equality. Since its launch at the United Nations by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and UN Women Global Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson, millions of men from around the world including Heads of State, CEOs, and global luminaries have committed to gender equality. 

    HeForShe was created from a very simple idea: engage men in the gender equality conversation. Gender equality has often been for women by women; however, all genders have a role to play and HeForShe actively mobilizes this 'new' demographic to re-energize the women's movement and accelerate progress towards the achievement of gender equality.

    Male allies are those men committed to building positive relationships with women, taking into consideration the inequalities present in the world today, and taking everyday actions to address them. This could be mentoring a female colleague, calling out sexist language, or questioning gender stereotypes. Allies make active efforts to not only take action themselves but to inspire and encourage others to do the same.

    Commit to HeForShe and inspire millions of others to do the same, I did.
